Eastgate Theatre, Peebles

Music by members of the Bach, Biber & Weiss families

From early to contemporary music, young German recorder player Tabea Debus (described by The Times as ‘a charismatic virtuoso’) is challenging established perceptions of her instrument. Lutenist Alon Sariel is similarly pushing boundaries and is equally at home in early, folk and avant garde music. Together, they offer a fresh and captivating approach to all they play.

In their ‘Sounds Familiar’ programme, Tabea and Alon bring together some of their favourite pieces, representing three great musical families of the 18th century. The brothers Weiss rub shoulders with fathers and sons from the families Biber and, of course, Bach (J.S. and C.P.E.) in a collection of works written for recorder and lute, and arrangements by Tabea and Alon themselves of pieces originally composed for other instruments.

Join these two multi-award winning young virtuosi, and hear familiar sounds with fresh ears.
